Hand touching TifBlair Centipede grass

With TifBlair™ Centipede, you might say we’re boldly taking a centipede grass cultivar to places it’s never been before—the cooler transition zone— or USDA  Growing Zone 7, to be exact. This slow-growing grass needs less mowing, and less fertilization to retain its beauty.  Developed after extensive research at the University of Georgia, this is what you get when science and nature put their heads together.  We’ve done all the hard work, so you don’t have to.
